A discussion between J. D. MACKIE , M.C., Professor of Scottish History and Literature in the University of Glasgow, and A. D. GIBB , LL.B., Regius Professor of Law in the University of Glasgow
Professor Dewar Gibb and Professor Mackie will discuss the Highland clearances which depopulated great areas of the North and West of Scotland in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Some of the history they touch upon is amongst the saddest of their country, but they will not confine themselves to the tragedies of long ago. They will also discuss modern movements in the Highlands and some of the schemes suggested for the undoing of the ill work of the clearances.
There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
